Hi everyone and welcome to Bristol Grandparents Support Group blog. Although we are Bristol based we have grandparents from all over the UK and beyond as members.

It is estimated that over one million children in the UK are denied contact with their grandparents due to family breakdown which may have been caused by divorce/separation, alcohol/drug dependency,domestic violence,bereavement or family feud.
Every child has the right to have contact with their grandparents
if they wish and unless proven unsafe for them to do so. To deny contact from a parent or grandparent has to become as socially unacceptable as drink driving.
I hope to keep you up to date with what is going on in BGSG and I shall continue to campaign for the rights of children to have a loving and meaningful relationship with both parents and their extended family. So please join in as good to hear your views, not just mine!
I also will support via Skype.
There is no membership fee to be part of Bristol Grandparents Support Group.
Esther Rantzen says, " To every grandparent, links of love can never be broken in our hearts."

Please contact during office hours.

Message from serving soldier.

You will remember me telling you about the young serving soldier who was not given permission to say goodbye to his daughter before he embarked for his tour of duty, in Afghanistan.
He says he his safe and well and is serving his country as well as fighting his own very personal injustice.
He has asked me if there is any publicity in papers etc could I send them to him, which of course I will.
I would be grateful if you could let me know if your local papers have featured this young mans heartbreak.
It is up to those of us here, to keep up the pressure.
